Newlyweds, ‘Til Death Do Us Part debut Jan. 21; Jessica may be pregnant.
The next season of Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica will debut Jan. 21 at 10 p.m. ET, followed by MTV’s next find-a-desperate-celebrity-couple-to-film reality show, ‘Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen & Dave. The seven-episode series “documents the lives of Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro during the months leading up to their wedding and culminating with the wedding ceremony,” according to MTV. Meanwhile, in a not-so-blind item, Gawker reports that Jessica may be eating for two. Last week she-who-shall-not-be-named said, “I don’t think I am going to get pregnant. I am trying not to.” However, Gawker says she “quite possibly may know that she’s already pregnant.” That leads us to ask, once again, if Jessica is, well, stupid. MTV has the definitive answer from Jessica’s lips: “People can say I’m dumb, I don’t care, because I know I’m not.” This prompts an interesting, albeit a circular and unanswerable question: If Jessica were dumb, would she be able to tell?
